Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this specially priced 2-CD release, piano legend Chick Corea showcases both his composer and instrumentalist sides in his vision of world, jazz, Latin, and classical music – converging into a new, whole work of startling beauty. It’s the sound of surprise.

Disc One: The Continents – composed of six sections depicting Africa, the Americas, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, and Europe – is a globally inspired concerto for jazz quintet and chamber orchestra.

Conducted by Steven Mercurio and performed with an all-star New York orchestra, including members of the Harlem Quartet and Imani Winds, among others.

The Jazz Quintet: Chick Corea piano, Steve Davis trombone, Tim Garland reeds, Hans Glawischnig

Disc Two (Bonus CD) features new solo and quintet jazz recordings.
